The Of Sabers and Monsters Wild Fight slot will have you fighting monsters and the high volatility to get you the top win of over 18,350x your bet.
Set in a faraway exotic land, you have only 8 paytable symbols on the six reels – The red, purple, green, and blue Adventurer, followed by the spade, heart, diamond, and clover. A simple theme set over huge reels.
The Of Sabers and Monsters has 4096 ways to win over 6×4 reels with the Wild Fight mechanics can see you get sticky wilds during any one of two free spin bonuses. It’s a high variance game with a top win of 18,350x your bet and an decent RTP of 96%.
And that’s just the start – you have instant cash wins, wild reels, and a host of bonus features, but only if you have the patience to stick it out. Fans of the Vikings Go Berzerk Reloaded slot should recognise the mechanics.
The first thing you’ll notice is that every time you have a win with one of the high-paying characters, you collect points. Very slowly but surely, you need to get to 100 points.
You’ll trigger the Of Sabers and Monsters Wild Fight slot Ardent re-spins, where that high-paying symbols will fight monsters in the middle four reels and turn into a sticky wild. The respins continue no more of the special symbols show up.
This is the same feature that makes the free spins so enjoyable – during the Of Sabers and Monsters slot bonus all the adventurers have a chance to fight monsters and turn into sticky wilds, like in the Vikings Go Wild slot.
They don’t always, but they can build up the wins quickly when they do.
Randomly on reel 6, you can find a blue feather. Mostly you win cash, somewhere between 4x to 200x your bet. But every once in a while, the blue magician will trigger the Tempest free spins.
This costs you 500x your bet in the buy bonus slot feature, so you know it’s a rich feature. But as the volatility of this Of Sabers and Monsters Wild Fight might imply, not guaranteed.
During the tempest free spins, all the adventurer symbols will always turn wild; unlike the Vikings Go to Hell slot, you have a chance to win with those high-paying symbols because they show up on reels 1 and 6.
It’s not easy, but then this Yggdrasil slot never claimed to be easy. It claims to be a vast adventurer where you fight monsters, and you don’t always win. High variance games at their best.

Wilds: The Wild symbol replaces all other symbols on the reels to help create a win over the 4096 ways to win.
Skirmish: Fill any middle 4 reels with high symbols in the base game to trigger the Skirmish feature. All the high-paying symbols on the filled reel will fight monsters - if they win, they turn wild; if they don't, they return as adventurers.
Ardent Respins: Each adventurer can collect 100 ardent free spins. You get points for winning with the symbols as follows:
The adventurer triggers a series of respin where he or she will always win the battle against the monsters and turn wild. The respins continue until they are no more battles to win, or if all the reels are filled with sticky wilds.
Free Spins: Land 3+ scatters anywhere on the reels to trigger the Of Sabers and Monsters slot free spins. 3, 4, 5, or 6 free spins trigger 8, 12, 16, or 20 free spins.
Unless you triggered with 20 free spins, you could choose to play a 50/50 gamble game to get more free spins. But if you lose the gamble, you lose the bonus.
Once you decide to play your bonus, you will be awarded with one of the following extra features:
Any adventurer that lands on the middle 4 reels during the bonus games will fight monsters. If they win, they stay on screen as sticky wilds for the duration of the free spins. If they don't, they turn back to adventurer symbols.
Tempest Free Spins: These 8 free spin bonus can only be triggered via the feather symbol or bought. During this bonus, all adventurers are in Ardent mode, so they always win their monster fights and always turn into sticky wilds.
The Feather Symbol: The feather only lands on the 6th reel and awards the following prizes in the base game -
In the free spins, you can find -
In the Tempest free spins, you can find -
Buy Bonus: For 80x your bet, you can buy entry directly into the free spin session. For 500x your bet, you can buy the Tempest free spins.
The wild fight mechanics is one we've enjoyed on many Yggdrasil slots, and we enjoy it again here. Of course, that doesn't take away from the fact that this game is crazy volatile and requires a crazy amount of patience.
The tempest free spins are rarer than hitting a Mega Moolah jackpot slot, while the buy bonus makes it too tempting to spend more money than you need to have fun.
But the top win of 18,350x your bet is just enough to make this very playable, especially if you aim for around half that just by triggering the normal free spins.
And if you are not sure you can stop yourself from paying more than you need to, you can always just try the MexoMax MultiMAx slot, which is as volatile but with quick action.
